Welcome to Northwestern Medicine Physician Partners

Northwestern Medicine Physician Partners (NMPP) is an integral part of Northwestern Medicine’s vision to be the leading academic value-based population health management program serving the Chicago metropolitan area. The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act challenged healthcare networks, physicians, hospital systems and other post-acute providers to partner together to improve clinical outcomes at a reduced cost while enhancing the patient experience. To do so, healthcare providers need to coordinate their services and build better-organized systems of care that foster clinical integration across all settings.

Created in 2013 to be an innovative model for population health management, the NMPP program is designed to promote wellness and prevention, manage chronic conditions and provide an extra level of care coordination and support for the most critically ill patients. NMPP draws from a depth and breadth of shared expertise to ensure that Northwestern Medicine is recognized as a pre-eminent healthcare destination of choice for patients, employers and payers. As a result, our patients benefit from improved outcomes and experience of care, our payers benefit from reduced cost and our physician members are rewarded for the effort required to achieve these improvements.
